Counting the Omer: Timing


Once the time arrives for counting the Omer (meaning, when the stars emerge at night), one should not engage in any other activity, even eating - one should simply count the Omer.

There are two reasons for this rule: To show love of the Mitzvah, and to avoid getting involved in other things and forgetting to count.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 489:4)

Have a great day,
